Churrería Laietana – Churros and Chocolate Via Laietana, 46, 08003 Barcelona
Looking for something enriching and sweet to do during Siesta time? Head over to the famous Avenue Laietana to indulge in pure tastebud joy. Churreria Laietana is a cozy cafe that has the most tempting, hand-made from scratch Churros and Chocolate in town. A Churreria does not get more authentic than this.
The Churreria Laietana is a Mom and Pop spot. The Pop makes the Churros, the Mom makes the Hot Chocolate and Cafe and the daughter handles the cash register. You can either eat there at the bar or take your Cafe and Churros to go. The Churros aren’t too sweet and are still full of flavor. They give you the option to pour on the granulated sugar or take them plain. The coffee is delightful and the ambiance gives you an opportunity to instantly absorb the culture. This unique cafe may even make you feel like you are one of the locals for the time you’re in the shop while dipping Churros in Chocolate and foregoing or shortening your Siesta. If you have little ones with you, you can get them a hot chocolate and Churros Combo. When in Barcelona; you can really do as the Spanish do. Que Rico (yummy)!

Tortilla Espanola – Work up an appetite and head over to a culinary backstreet for traditional Catalan Tortilla Espanola. This Tortelleria is truly authentic and can be served as a delightful lunch after the park or the beginning of a night out on the town. Served Tapas style, you will not be dissappointed in the abundant amount of selection. You can get anything from strictly veggie to sausage and ham. Don’t let the Tapas portions fool you; the assortment of Tortillas gives you more than enough variety to tempt your pallet and gratify your belly.
What to order? Steve did the house special which we recommend if you have no dietary restrictions. My vegetarian self did the same thing but with a vegetarian modifier. Our kids just shared everything with us. One of the wonderful things about Tapas style is as you finish your Tortillas, you can order more 🙂 ps- great coffee as well.
We hope you and your children enjoy your travels.
